𝑻𝒊𝒕𝒍𝒆: Rainbow of Emotions
𝑨𝒖𝒕𝒉𝒐𝒓: Djehane Hassouna
“Rainbow of Emotions: A Selection of Poems” is a great poetry book written by Djehane Hassouna.
Each word seems as if it is written directly from the author’s soul. The poem LIGHT is my favorite from the book. Some other poems that are my favorite from the collection are: Tears and Smiles, Stress, Seasons, Cell Phones, etc. One could relate to these poems well as they are about basic life events.
We all need Light in our lives. Light’s many dimensions
Illuminate our environment as well as our soul.
We require Light to observe, discover, analyze, and elucidate
As well as Light to feel, comprehend,
Reason out, accept, or refuse.
We need the Light of Reason and the Light of Love
To fill our hearts and minds.
We need the Divine Light of understanding and compassion;
The Light of gratitude for all the blessings we’ve received.
Without light we can be so helpless!
Language used in the book is simple. Even if you are not an avid poetry reader, you would be able to understand these poems easily. I enjoyed reading these poems with a hot cup of coffee while sitting on my front porch.
Since this poetry book is a culmination of Djehane’s life experiences, I learnt so many lessons from this book. Writing style of the author is impressive. The choice of title for the book is something I really appreciate. Fans of poetry couldn’t afford to miss reading this book at all.
